I only know a little about this, but normally when a new project is
created, even if an existing older, the .project file doesn't yet exist
and Eclipse will create one. So when Eclipse initially checks for the
..project file you should ensure that it reaches the conclusion that no
such file exists. Then when Eclipse tries to create the .project file,
you should ensure that you indeed create one and then store exactly what
Eclipse is trying to store there.
